Complete Dressmaking
This is such a pretty way to add detail to your clothes. 
It works well on light to medium-weight fabrics, so it is perfect for lingerie or silk dresses and skirts.

If you are adding this decoration within a garment, you will need to do a bit of pattern alteration first to accommodate the lace if you don’t want to add extra length.
